I am excited to announce both our September and October reads for book club. For September we will be revisiting with Colum McCann, author of “Let the Great World Spin”. In “TransAtlantic” McCann relies again on his Irish heritage to weave a tale of two continents and three centuries.
After our jaunt to Ireland we will travel to India for a heart-breaking work of nonfiction by Pulitzer Prize Winner Katherine Boo.
To recap our next Reads:
July: Quest for Justice, Richard Jaffe
August: Eating the Dinosaur, Chuck Klosterman
September: TransAtlantic, Colum McCann
October: Behind the Beautiful Forevers, Katherine Boo
